    Pros

    Seagate is very flexible with work life balance. Everyone works hard to get products released and keep customers happy.

    Cons

    Work is always intense with long hours. Nothing great ever comes from easy work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always say thank you to employees for great work. Bonuses are always a great way to show appreciation, but at least saying thank means a lot.

    I have been working at Seagate Technology as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best things about working here are the co-workers. People I've come into contact with have been down to earth, easy to get a long with and very approachable. You will work hard, but you'll like the team that you're working with and that will make the work enjoyable and rewarding. Each team, depending on the department you're working in will be a different experience. Depending on the team you're in you might have to work some extra hours but the work-life balance is definitely manageable and you'll be able to keep a healthy balance.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons at the moment as I am still going through the training and job interview process. I will update in the future if I have any cons or issues.

    Pros

    Small city so everyone knows ones other. .good common people employed.

    Cons

    Performance related pay is outdated .. No employee rights.keep changing the rules.one rule for management, eng. etc and another for shift workers.Managers hold grudges and pay is laughable.
    Needs american ceo's, directors, managers to return on a full time basis and sort out the discrimination and favourtism which is rife around the ranks.
    Becoming a really stressful company to work for due to the conquer and division mentality which has deepend in the past few years.
    Using and altering data to use as a batering stick to give unfair appraisals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and manage fairly and remember that you are only managers not gods..directors have to see that they are now borderline paranoid and thats we hsve gone padt cost cutting andvare now throat cutting.
